A mostly wooded trail with some pretty views and elevation change as it heads about 3/4 of the way around Pilot Mountain. It connects with the Grindstone Trail to complete a nice loop.

This trail feels much easier if you go clockwise the first 4.1 miles are gradually uphill if you go counterclockwise the first 1.4 miles are steep uphill and therefore may feel harder. It's a beautiful trail.

Great trail for running. Rarely ever Muddy even after a lot of rain.
